Got the screen back using the vesa driver. Resolution is fair but I
can't seem to get any nvidia drivers to work. I must be doing something
wrong. The card is a Galaxy NVIDIA GeForce 6200 (0x0222) which the
nvidia site claims is covered by the new nvidia driver. I've tried both
nvidia drivers using the add/remove software graphical interface and
both apt-get and downloading the driver package.
The last system worked well on my machine with a GeForce 6200 3D card.
Both cards have 256Mb of RAM.
